(50 mi)/(1 h) = (50*5280ft)/(3600sec) = (50*5280*{0.3048}/3600)(m/s) = 22.352(m/s).

50 mph = 50 miles/h *1.6093 km/mile = 80.465 km/h

80.465 km/h = 80,465 m/h / 3600 sec/h = 22.35 m/sec

By definition there are2.54 cm in an inch. So work out the number of inches in a mile. Then multiply by 2.54 to get cm and divide by 100 to get metres. Finally work out the number of seconds in an hour and divide by that to get the metres in a second. ( 50 * 12 * 3 * 22 * 10 * 8 * 2.54 / 100 / ( 60*60) ) = 22.352 m/s precisely
